The elegant in-house restaurant at Grafton’s Quality Inn is a popular special-occasion dining destination for locals and visitors alike. Victoria’s hosts a barbecue night on Sunday evenings in summer, and roast meats are served from the carvery on Sunday nights in winter. The Monday to Saturday à la carte menu follows the seasons and features locally sourced prime duck and lamb. Creative Pacific Rim–inspired seafood dishes like prawns and lobster in coconut cream are a specialty. Stay on for decadent house-made desserts, accompanied by local wines available by the bottle and the glass.
